Henry "Harry" Ibbotson 1886-1929 Ashton Under Lyne, England

Ancestry.com includes a notation for a will for Henry Ibbotson with the following text.
IBBOTSON Henry of 7 Spring Grove-terrace, Ashton-Under-Lyne, Lancashire died 22 Apr 1929 Administration Manchester 5 July to Sarah Ann Ibbotson widow. Effects (Pounds) 148 0s. 3d.
As you can see, the notation includes Henry's death date (22 Apr 1929). The other piece of information is the home address for the Ibbotson family.

After Henry's death (age 43), his widow can be found in the 1939 English register at 21 Greenfield Street, Audenshaw U.D., Lancashire, England. She is listed as Sarah A. Ibbotson, which means she has not remarried. In addition, the record includes information on sons Ernest and Alan Ibbotson. Two additional people--probable children--are closed records.

I've found no records for Sarah Jane (Dodd) Ibbotson after 1939 when she is 46 years old. Sarah may have remarried after 1939.

If you have additional information, please leave a comment.
